Background

    The Department published antidumping duty and countervailing duty 
orders on honey from Argentina on December 10, 2001.\2\ In the first

    On July 2, 2012, the Department initiated the current sunset 
reviews pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.218. See Initiation Notice. We 
received no response from the domestic industry by the deadline date. 
See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). As a result, the Department has determined 
that no domestic interested party intends to participate in the sunset 
reviews. See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii)(A). On July 22, 2012, the 
Department notified the ITC in writing that we intended to revoke the

351.218(d)(1)(iii)(B)(3), if no domestic interested parties respond to 
a notice of initiation, the Department shall, within 90 days after the 
initiation of the review, revoke the order. Because no domestic 
interested party filed a notice of intent to participate in these 
sunset reviews, we are revoking the antidumping duty and countervailing 
duty orders on honey from Argentina.

Effective Date of Revocation

    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(3)(A) and 751(c)(6)(A)(iii) of the Act,

merchandise prior to the effective date of revocation will continue to

any pending reviews of these orders and will conduct administrative 
reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of 
revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review.

published in accordance with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
